    Default Karma Cable Interconnects & Tonearm Cables

    So after using this new cable for a few months today i made a pair of interconnects and a tonearm cable up for you peeps to have a listen.
    This cable beats everything ive used to date im happy to say,in fact when i first made up the cable it was a bit of a revelation.

    It uses OCC copper throughout,extremley well balanced with an open and airy top end,mid to highs reveal more detail that my previously used cables,audioquest colorado and columbia,so much so i flogged both after hearing these

    The tonearm cable is screened completely,in my system its dead silent,no hum what so ever even at full volume.. OCC copper is again used and partnered with KLE Silver Harmony RCA plugs.

    Id like to invite people to try them in their system and hopefully experiance the same as me,the new pair will be used all week to give them a chance to settle in,then i will start a loan list.
    For now heres some pics.

    After lots of experimenting with your other cables , comparing them with what I already had plus other more exotic stuff and coming to the conclusion that you are making very promising gear I can't wait to get my hands on these new ones. It also looks like you've made improvements to the final finish too. Good work matey.

    They look far better than your first cables, Jamie.

    Proper fit and finish.

    Well done for persevering and I'm glad you've got the results you were looking for.

    Be good to hear the tonearm cable in my system, I currently use a Van damme pro grade xke, a cheap cable, but apparently good quality. Never thought about tonearm cable before when I've concentrated on so much else in my vinyl set up, so be good to see what difference it makes.
